Reflection: Lesson Planning "This is Just to Say"...the Seven Sins and Virtues (Day 1 of 2) - Section 4: Building Knowledge: Allusion in "C'mon Pigs of Western Civilization Eat More Grease"


My goal was to finish both of these poems in class today.  However, my students are really struggling with tone.  Last year my students came in ready to teach me about tone. This year I get confused and blank faces.  Weird.  I am going to spend more time on tone.
